first question. if i was hypothetically growing shrooms (which i'm not since it's illegal where i live :wink:) does complete colonization of my jars mean that the bottom side of my cake must be all white too? or just the sides?
and second question. is a tupperware container with a peice of plexiglass in it a good terrarium? or is there something wrong with plastic for fruiting? i just haven't been able to find anything that uses plastic tubs...they all recommend glass.

the bottom being white means that colonization is finshed, you have to wait for complete colonization before birthing
your terrarium seems fine to me as soon as the plexi is at the top. btw there's nothing wrong about plastic and fruiting but you should fill the bottom with wet perlite to keep rh high enough

good luck in cultivation

alright then
thank you...and the plexi glass is slantwise so as to act as a spray sheild, there is a plastic sheet on top.

I've never used a spray shield, and I think I've read a couple of threads that said they were a waste of time. But do what you gotta do.

I mean, I'm not sure how it would hurt to use it, so like in Spaceballs "smoke em' if you got em' ". I just heard its not manditory for cakes.

If you're relying on spray misting as your soul source of humidification, then you'll be doind a lot of spraying, and a spray shield would proabably be best. But you should really try Perlite humidification as it's easier and can be more effective.
